Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 1st Step For Flawless Skin I have been searching for a product like this for a while and I am very pleased with, not only the results, but also the experience of using it. After washing my hands and drying them thoroughly, I use 4 pumps and massage onto my face and neck area with quick sweeping, upward circular motions. The essential oils along with the squalene, emulsify and bond with all your naturally produced oil and dirt from a typical day of run, run, run. I instantly feel more relaxed and calm upon smelling the lavender and those daily stressors seem a bit more manageable. Anyway, after massaging the oils in and out of your pores add a few drops of warm water and massage a bit more as it becomes milky is appearance. Rinse well with warm water and you are ready for step 2. I understand that many people have no interest in a skin care regiment that exceeds beyond one step, but TRUST ME you will be rewarded for your time. Following the route I outlined above, grab any type foaming face wash. When I say foaming, it does not mean it has to come from a pump or say foaming on the package. Any soap that bubbles up with water is the key. I alternate between the Calendula face wash and a few other favorites of mine. I HIGHLY recommend the product contains citrus extracts, glycoloc acid or any other brightening ingredient. This time, add a bit more water than with the oil cleanser and repeat the same manner of application. I often use a rotating facial brush, silicone pulsing thingamajig or a washcloth depending on that days need. Rinse well with warm water and move on from there. I PROMISE you will enjoy the experience and LOVE the results even more. Your face will feel the cleanest you have felt and you are guaranteed to glow. It’s all about using the oil first to grab all the nasty and then using a water based cleanser to wash it all away. It’s basic chemistry and it woks! Now if you’re ready to move onto steps 3 and so on, it gets even better!!!! Enjoy your beautiful and radiating skin!! You deserve it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! I massage my face in circles to remove makeup with this oil and I can feel some "particles/debris" are being cleaned out of the pores. It smells good and doesn't dry out while I'm massaging. I use oil-based makeup remover on a daily basis and I always wash my face with cleanser afterwards anyways so it's not a problem to me. However, this is a bit oily compared to other similar products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Removes mascara! Removes all makeup without oily feeling afterwards. Leaves skin feeling hydrated not dry after use. When I tried a sample for a couple of days I was sold! It is the only makeup remover I use. I have mature combination skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I absolutely love this cleansing oil! I was a long time user of another oil and never thought I would use any other. I tried this as a sample and fell in love. This product just melts the makeup away and leaves behind super soft and hydrated skin. I don’t even need a night moisturizer after using this! Please keep making it and never change it, it’s just perfect as it is. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Contraversary info by Kiehl's reps I bought this product a month ago. Never really liked oily textures, but decided to give it a try. I didn't feel confident about how to use it as after washing off with water my skin felt like it's not completely removed. I was on. vacation travelling in Europe and shopping in different countries. Was puzzled to hear absolutely different application advices from Kiehl's consultsnts. One said it does not require aditional products, just water to wash it off. The other - insisted to use cleanser like Calendula after this oil to remove the product. Dear team Khiel's please check on this and advise. I feel like it needs to be washed off with a cleanser, not water; but I definitely not want to damage my skin lipo layer... P.S Looks like offline consultants need better training in order not to provide contraversary info... or they just intebd to sell more products???!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser for Dry Skin This stuff is awesome! I have very dry skin, but with an oily nose, and this cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean, perfectly soft and even my nose is happy. It takes off makeup of all kinds (powder, cream, mineral, waterproof, mascara, liner, lipstick) quickly and effortlessly. I wish it came in a gallon-sized bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser ever! I have used 6 bottles so far and I still love it. I recommended to my mom and she fell in love as well. Very soft and it removes eye make up as well so I can save time using the oil for my eyes and face at the same time. I have dry and sensitive skin and this is the perfect cleanser for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and melts makeup away! As much as I like to put on make up it makes me so excited to use this cleansing oil at night. The smell is oh so delightful. Makes me feel so relaxed and perfect for night time regimen.

How well does this remove eye makeup?

Asked by: asdfghjkll
It removes eye makeup very well. I wear lots of high-quality, thick mascara and I'm able to wipe it off both eyes with a cotton ball and a couple of pumps of this cleansing oil.

Do I need to wash my face with another cleanser afterwards?

Asked by: Chremotic

Is it okay to clean your face with a toner after washing with this product?

I usually wipe my face with a toner after cleansing, but should you tone after washing with this product? It feels almost like I'm wiping off the moisture that the cleanser leaves behind on my face. Is that counterproductive to what this product is trying to accomplish?
Asked by: Melly

Can this be used on acne prone oily skin?

Asked by: Anonymous
It might be worth a try. I have used this product in the past, but I don’t have acne prone skin. My son does, however, and he has used a different brand of cleansing oil for a year or so now and it works well for him. He still has some acne, but definitely less than before. Neither of us have particularly oily skin, but I don’t think this will make yours oilier. You may even find it less oilier over time. If you use a cleanser that makes your face feel squeaky clean, it might take you a few uses to get used to this one.
